Extended Scope Practitioner
At Surrey Physio, we have a number of extended scope practitioners to provide you with specialist physiotherapy if required.
What is an Extended Scope Practitioner?
An extended scope practitioner is a band 7 physiotherapist who has gone on to do extra or specialist training. Typically this could include orthopaedics, advanced manual therapy, advanced rehabilitation, or injection therapy. Extended scope practitioners have a minimum of five years of post-qualified experience.
How do I see an Extended Scope Practitioner?
There is a good possibility you may have already seen one of our highly-skilled clinicians. But don’t worry if you have not, because our ESPs are currently training lower band physios to get them to the ESP standard. In some cases, our physiotherapists already have the standard required for ESP but have not yet been qualified five years.
Our Extended Scope Practitioner Programme
We have developed an extended scope practitioner programme to help all of our team achieve the ESP standard. We continue to invest in this training and to improve our training so that we can provide our patients with high-quality care and expertise.
